Before the UFC on FUEL TV 3: Korean Zombie vs. Poirier main card airs live on FUEL TV, the six preliminary bouts streamed on Facebook.

Let’s be honest, Tuesdays are useless. They’re just a day removed from Monday, but too far from the end of the week to get you excited about anything.

The time has come, all the work has been put in and it’s finally time for UFC 142: Aldo vs. Mendes. The UFC’s second trip to Brazil in just under five months hit a pot hole at yesterdays weigh-ins as co-main event fighter Anthony Johnson massively missing the middleweight limit of 186 lbs. by a staggering 11 pounds. The fight will still take place as a catchweight bout but Johnson will lose 20% of his purse and was forced to weigh-in less than 205 lbs. today.
